review. the result of the game is final." this is perhaps the most abhorrent ruling since bush v. gore. let's bring in dave zirin. thank you for your time tonight. dave, you were just about bouncing off walls bouncing through tv screens all day. give me your take on what happened and why. >> it was about as agonizing as passing a kidney stone and to actually sit through the end of that broadcast last night. it was so painful! it was a living, breathing explanation for why skilled union labor matters in the united states! you had unskilled untrained replacement/scab referees and the moment was far too big for them to put it mildly. they couldn't punch their way -- they absolutely cracked under the pressure and the result of which you saw on the field. an absolute embarrassment and a farce. something i believe woody allen would have called a travesty of a mockery of a travesty of a sham. >> eliot: basically like american politics. we'll put that aside for a moment. what i saw and i'm the untrained observer when it comes to the intricacies of football rules. i saw pass interference.

black and johnson and it's been fractious before, but not for the last couple of years since bush v gore. >> eliot: which was a moment of tension and personal eveninginess among the justices. the cases this term as they always are uniquely important. affirmative action, something that is a staple to admissions to higher institutions under gradual assault until finally it is finally eliminateed. >> it is a possibility. and it's a hugely important case, as you say. at least four justices and really justice kennedy is the fifth who have expressed strong skepticism towards it. they question the landmark of cases from 1978 and 2003 allowing universities to use affirmative action, and they could pull the trigger here. it's possible they could come up with a narrower ruling. the issue is the university of texas having decided to admit graduates from the top ten percent from every texas high school can in addition to that once you pick the 10% plan to pick up your numbers of minorities you can't use the additional preference, there might be the vote to do the whole thing. >> eliot: somethin

by the end of the bush administration in january of 2009. but for more than two years now it is steadily, quietly gone up to the tune of half a million new jobs. it goes to prove that we can save the manufacturing sector and we should, making things is better than pushing paper back and forth. so to remanufacture the political phrase of the moment, we really can build that.

at 10 and when george w. bush was president and left office, we were losing jobs at 750,000 per month. so i think rather than the absolute number, the trend line and the sense of confidence, it maybe confidence overstates it. it states they're coming back as in the benefit for the president. >> just like jill biden said today, the middle class has been buried for the first four years. first time i've ever agreed with joe biden. the gdp was revised downward from 1.7% growth to 1.3%. we know that another million one trillion was added to the federal debt in this fiscal year. the trend line is actually continually going down. >> eliot: in isolation, they would be problematic for an incumbent president. when you put them in context of a larger macroeconomy, the public says we understand what you've done. let me ask you this. governor romney's policies seem to be a rehash of what george w. bush wanted to do and did. and people look at it and they say this is old wine in new bottles. it didn't work before. why will it work now? >> i don't think they'll see that. in fact, the reason --
